The key factor in this hotel is its location. It is directly on the beach with only a promenade to cross to access the beach and sea. We had a room with a sea view and it is definitely worth the upgrade. The hotel is comfortable without being luxurious. The room was fine with space for everything but not huge. The bed was comfortable and the the curtains and blinds created a complete blackout so along with the sound of the sea (we left the patio door slightly open) we slept comfortably and peacefully.
Breakfast was in the second part of the hotel across a quiet road. It was a self-service buffet that covered all the angles. I could have done with a fresh fruit salad (but there was enough fruit to make my own) and the orange juice dispensed from the machine was alarmingly sweet. The coffee was fine and the hot food fine even though it never varied.
The pool area was pretty compact (and the pool very small) but there were lots of beds around it (though many of these were in poor shape and could not be adjusted). We did not swim in the pool preferring to stroll across the prom to the sea and swim there on our beach days.
It was a short walk to the Balcon de Europa and the centre of town and a slightly longer one to the bus station.
The reception staff were very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate any requests we had. The only minor niggle was the wi-fi which worked fine in the public areas but was very variable in the room (just to remind us of home).
Overall a very comfortable, welcoming and well located hotel. Not luxurious but makes up for it in location and friendliness.
